Iceland secured second position in FIFA World Cup qualifying Group E thanks to a 1-1 draw in Norway and Slovenia's narrow defeat by Switzerland.

Needing victory to guarantee the runners-up spot in Group E and a place in the play-offs, Iceland made the perfect start when Kolbeinn Sigthórsson gave them a 12th-minute lead. Daniel Braaten equalised for the hosts on the half-hour, however, leaving Lars Lagerback's charges to rely on Slovenia's loss to confirm their play-off berth.
